Police officer in the Viral Owerri Bank robbery video died in April
Disheartening though. A police officer named Chukwudi Iboku who became the sweetheart of the public after he single handedly challenged the armed robbers that attacked the Zenith Bank at Wetheral Road, Owerri died on April, 2017, two months after the incident.
The gory video which became viral on the internet and major news websites and blogs in Nigeria, showed the gallant officer shooting at the armed robbers and shot one dead.
The video shows Iboko who shot the armed robber, escaping from security post, while one of the other robbers pursued and shot after him. The Imo State Police Command told Punch correspondent that owing to the multiple gunshot injuries sustained by Iboko, he succumbed to his injuries two months later while in intensive care.
He fought a good fight. May his soul rest in peace. Amen!
